Eating and having a brew on a weekday afternoon, off time. Still quite busy, always a line. Not super fast service but that seemed to be more of a function of inadequate staffing than a lack of willingness to jam by the employees.

Food was especially good, albeit a bit pricey, but the quality shant be dissed in any way for quality and tasty-ness. Rueben sandwich, awesome, wing-burger, great, tuna and PBJ also damn tasty. Sandwiches are by no means small, nor is there any lack of meat. Everything was quite tasty.

Pretty good selection of beer, both on tap and in the cooler, but the cooler is consume in house only so that kinda limits your actual selection to how much you can consume while you're there.

Choice city is doing it right. The brunch at this place will change your life. The food is some of the best in town and I love the small atmosphere inside. This can lead to a wait from time to time but it normally proves to be worth it. They always have a great selection of beers and just recently they had Plinly the Younger on tap! If you're in Fort Collins and want to find some rare hard to find beers this is the place for you.

If you're visiting FC this is a must-visit spot. A solid beer list and an awesome menu--don't be disappointed that the sides are kinda lame, the burgers, sandwiches, and entrees all stand on their own. Get the Colorado Ruben (half is enough, don't worry) and something dark to drink and you'll be happy.

Always something phenomenal on tap at Choice City. Rares, Whales, and New beers abound. A great place to find something new and maybe run into an old favorite that you just can't find anywhere else. From Pliny the Younger to BA Yeti and Crooked Stave rares, I've seen it all here. It never disappoints.

- I have been here on many occasions to which I can always find a good pint. The food is ok, pretty utilitarian but beer is great. Atmosphere is a bit distracting, cluttered, and uncomfortable. Servers are nice and mostly knowledgeable. Yet again you can always count on something to catch your eye in the beer department.

Friendly, knowledgeable servers. Nice outdoor seating area. Good selection of beers that are sometimes hard to find other places. Reasonable beer prices- usually $6 per pint. Almost all beers- even high ABV are sold in pints. Food is marginal and there have been some dicey health inspection reports on Choice City in the local newspaper. Very slow service. You stand in one line to order food and another line to order beers and to pay. I usually get one beer and leave because of the ridiculous waiting in multiple lines.

Big open space with plenty of tables, service was absolute crap. Went for lunch. There was one other small group of people there and no one else and the guy seems liked I was inconveniencing him which I just can't stand.

It's cool that they have local and above average beers on tap. Just had one. Food was pretty above average (after they got my order right the second time).

Price was a bit much for a sandwich. Wouldn't go back just based on the crappy attitude of the servers and food prep employees.

A cool place to grab some (unhealthy) quality food and along with some quality beer. Great combo of quality food and drink here. The service is spotty; first time I was there was during their Thursday/Friday/Saturday dinner and the server was quite good and had something to offer with her recommendations. She was also more than willing to offer free samples of a beer to check out. Check. The other times were during regular hours and the workers were far less knowledgeable and had a hard teem even trying to explain what some of their beers were. Same deal with the food as well. Overall, though, I dig the place. Definitely screams mom and pop local joint, with a nice casual environment.

This was the first place I stopped on a recent trip to Fort Collins, looking to grab some good lunch and a beer. The place was packed out, but a table opened up as we were waiting for our food. The menu offers some unique twists on old classics plus standard deli fare. I had the bison reuben with some kettle chips, which was really awesome. The beer selection is nice too. You can tell these guys know and care about good beer. I had a Bruery Saison de Lente from the tap, which was a nice find and perfect for an early spring afternoon. Definitely a good place to stop and fill up before heading down the street to Odell or New Belgium to fill your belly up with awesome beer.

Great place you have to visit while in Ft. Collins! Sat at the small bar staring at a awesome wall of taps. Sours, stouts,IPAs they even scored PtY earlier in the year. KUDO's on that!!!! There's also a small selection of bottles from the local brewery's that can be bought. The help were friendly and knowledgable and the food was incredible, also tables outside for those nice days and warm nites. Lucky for us we were able to meet the owner and trade/share some bottles from his hidden valt!!!! THANKS "Places like this are made for searching out.."
